While walking through the Math building rotunda this afternoon I looked up and in the lamp hanging directly overhead saw more than a few dead moths.
And at that moment I wondered: If augury is divination through the the observation of bird flight, what do we call predictions based on the patterns formed by dead moths? "Heteroceramancy" becomes entangled somewhere between my tongue and teeth whenever I try to say it.

In the interest of feedback, people without Facebook accounts are reading your blog, so keep posting.
This blog though raising interesting points of what I'll say is hetero-sarah-mancy... Leaves out the obvious point of... What did the dead moth pattern tell you of your future???
I can tell you what it did not tell me: that I'd overlook these comments on my blog for over a week! There was a whiff of future postings, but that may have just been the smell of stale, dead moth.
I'd like to stop talking about moths, now. They're gross. Except for this moth: http://www.themoth.org/.
